Selection Process

Applicants who qualify CEED and meet eligibility criteria for each stream are eligible to apply

All applications will be scrutinized to verify whether they meet the eligibility criteria of the streams applied to. Those applications not conforming to eligibility criteria will be rejected.

A category-wise merit list for each stream would be prepared based on the CEED marks of the eligible candidates, called IDC – CEED merit list.

Out of all candidates who apply to various streams in IDC, an Interview Call list will be made for each stream. This list for each stream will have a limited number of top scoring applicants from IDC-CEED merit list.

Interview Call list is decided on the basis of category-wise seats available in each stream and by using a multiplying factor for each category.

The multiplying factor for all categories is 8 (eight). e.g. if the number of seats in General category is 10 for a particular stream, then 80 candidates available from the General category will be called for written test and interview. This would be applicable to all categories.

The applicants in the Interview Call list will have to appear in admission test on Friday, 13th April 2018 and interview on Wednesday Saturday, 14th April 2018 and Sunday, 15th April 2018 at IDC School of Design, IIT Bombay. Appearance in all test, and Interview are mandatory. Admission process The admission process consists of a written test and Interview for each of the streams. Written test may include a material/ studio test, which will be communicated to the applicants to be called for written test and interview. 10

The written test and interview will carry 100 marks each.

After the written test and interview, a category wise Final merit list using final scores will be prepared. The final score would be the total of CEED marks, written test and Interview marks with 70%, 30% weight-age respectively.

A Final merit list would be constituted based on the above final score. Admission would be offered from this list based on seats available for each category.

A cutoff, called Final merit list cutoff would be applied to the Final merit list. This would be 50 for General, 45 for OBC(NC) (i.e. 90% of GENERAL), and 33 for SC/ST/PwD (i.e. 2/3 of GENERAL) respectively.

Candidates with final score that is less than the Final merit list cutoff for their respective category will not be considered for admission even if a seat is available in that category. For instance, only those General category candidates who score 50 or above in the Final merit list will be considered for admission. Similarly, only those OBC (NC) category candidates who score 45 and above in the Final merit list will be considered for admission and only those SC/ST/PwD category candidates who score 33 and above in the Final merit list will be considered for admission.

The Final merit list cutoff is fixed in advance by the institute. It is the measure of a certain minimum aptitude and abilities expected in a candidate aspiring to pursue the academically challenging and demanding programme.
